Breakthrough

Standard
Toes pressing against smooth tiles,
I leap
Gathering my arms and legs together
Like a folding tripod,
I pierce
The water toes first,
            Down
                        Down…
 
From my watery ground,
I stare up to watery skies,
And a watery sun undulates,
Above watery ripples;
Nothing is clear from my hydro-perspective,
Blurred and out of focus;
            I start upwards
Toward the warped image of reality;
It seems a long way off and I
Wonder, Will I ever break through?
 
From the watery depths I behold my life
Undulating in a blur of failures and weaknesses;
The snapshot of perfection that I know
Should be reality
Lies beyond,
Out of reach,
Will I ever break through?
